Leominster & Berrington
Leominster itself has relatively few stone buildings although those that remain include the remains of the Benedictine Priory for which stone was clearly brought some distance in times past.
The Kington, Leominster and Stourport Canal is an unfinished canal, with its original aim being to bring agricultural produce from the area across to the River Severn and beyond. In 1859 the Canal was sold to the Shrewsbury and Hereford Railway, who used much of the route for the Tenbury and Bewdley Railway line. Despite this unfortunate history, evidence of the former canal, and indeed railway, can still be seen along its course, with a number of interesting stone structures, whose origins are yet to be discovered. Immediately adjacent to the Canal route north of Leominster lies Berrington Hall, a National Trust property, which is believed to be constructed of local stone, said to have been brought in by a specially constructed railway line. This is the subject of ongoing investigations.
